1. Create a new project and add RadMultiColumnComboBox
2. Bind it and setup filtering
3. Attach to SelectedValueChanged and SelectedIndexChanged events
4. Run the project
5. Apply some filtering and you will see that these events will not fire, regardless that the current row has changed.

Work around it by using the EditorControl.CurrentRowChanged event instead of SelectedValueChanged/SelectedIndexChanged events.

This issue is inside the same application as in ticket #667438. There is a MultiColumnComboBox inside the editor form. There are two data sources. One containing the customer's "Rep" field and one for the list of dropdown items (list of Reps).

How can the dropdown list be bound to the list of Reps but still display and update the Customer's Rep field? The attached video demonstrates the current behavior of the control.

When filtering is applied to RadMultiColumnComboBox editor in CellEditorInitialized event of RadGridView, the selected item is second one, if the new row is edited.

Workaround: change the event handler by adding the following lines of code in the end of the RadGridView1_CellEditorInitialized:

Dim value As Object = e.Row.Cells(e.ColumnIndex).Value
 
If value Is Nothing Then
    editor.EditorControl.CurrentRow = Nothing
Else
    editor.Value = e.Row.Cells(e.ColumnIndex).Value
End If

To reproduce:

DataTable dt = new DataTable();
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
{
    dt.Columns.Add("Column " + i);
}
for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++)
{
    dt.Rows.Add(i);
}

this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.DataSource = dt;
this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.DisplayMember = "Column 0";
this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.DropDownSizingMode = SizingMode.UpDown;
this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.AutoSizeDropDownToBestFit = true;
this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.EditorControl.LoadElementTree();
this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.MultiColumnComboBoxElement.DropDownAnimationEnabled = false;
this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.MultiColumnComboBoxElement.ShowPopup();


The columns are autosized but the popup is not sized correctly.

To reproduce:
Type "Th" into the multi-column combo box in the attached project.  Then press and hold the Backspace key until "Th" is deleted.  Then release Backspace key.  There remain only the filtered options in the dropdown.
If I press and release the backspace key 1x for each typed letter, then the dropdown repopulates as expected.

Workaround: 
 private void radMultiColumnComboBox1_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.MultiColumnComboBoxElement.ApplyFilter();
        }

To reproduce:
- The attached video shows how you can reproduce the issue

Note - you should type fast in the drop down and the size is invalid only the firs time.

Workaround:
RadMultiColumnComboBox1.MultiColumnComboBoxElement.DropDownAnimationEnabled = False

Hello,

I'm facing a problem with the MulticolumnCombobox that results in an SelectedValueChanged-Event when the list is dropped down the first time after data source was set. Please use the attached project for reproducing the problem using the following steps:

  1. Start Application on Windows 10 Chinese (Note: The described behaviour will not occur for other cultures (i.e. German will not fire the event at that time))
  2. Click the Button having the Text "RadButton1", which will set the DataSource and fire the event "SelectedValueChanged" (MessageBox will pop up) which is okay at this point.
  3. Now perform the drop down for the Combobox. Using Windows 10 Chinese will fire "SelectedValueChanged" and Windows 10 German will not fire "SelectedValueChanged".

==> As the MulticolumnCombobox performs different based on the culture, this seems to be a bug.

 

If you need further information, please do not hestitate to ask.

Populate RadMultiColumnComboBox with data and enable the auto filter functionality. Apply a CompositeFilterDescriptor with two text columns. Try to filter entering several letters and press Tab. You will notice that the SelectedIndexChanged event is not fired in this case. However, if only one FilterDescriptor is added, not a CompositeFilterDescriptor, the selection will be properly updated. 

Please refer to the attached sample project and gif file which illustrates the behavior.

When set the SelectedIndex property in the DropDownClosed event selected index is not set correctly.  

Workaround:
private void radMultiColumnComboBox1_DropDownClosed(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.RadPopupClosedEventArgs args) 

{

this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.SelectedIndex = 0; 

this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.EditorControl.CurrentRowChanging += new CurrentRowChangingEventHandler(EditorControl_CurrentRowChanging); 

}

void EditorControl_CurrentRowChanging(object sender, CurrentRowChangingEventArgs e) 

{

e.Cancel = true; 

this.radMultiColumnComboBox1.EditorControl.CurrentRowChanging -= EditorControl_CurrentRowChanging; 

}

To reproduce:
- Start the attached project and type a value so one item remains in the drop down.
- Press Enter - event is not fired.

Workaround:
Use the DropDownClosed event and check if the value is changed.

To reproduce:

Add a RadMultiColumnComboBox with two rows. Open the dropdown, you will see no scrollbars, open it again and scrollbars will be visible.

Workaround:

Use the following custom class:

public class MCCB : RadMultiColumnComboBox
{
    protected override RadMultiColumnComboBoxElement CreateMultiColumnComboBoxElement()
    {
        return new MCCBElement();
    }
}

public class MCCBElement : RadMultiColumnComboBoxElement
{
    protected override Size GetPopupSize(RadPopupControlBase popup, bool measure)
    {
        Size baseSize = base.GetPopupSize(popup, measure);

        RadScrollBarElement hScrollBarElement = this.EditorControl.TableElement.HScrollBar;
        baseSize.Height += (int)hScrollBarElement.ControlBoundingRectangle.Size.Height;

        return baseSize;
    }

    protected override Type ThemeEffectiveType
    {

        {
            return typeof(RadMultiColumnComboBoxElement);
